The Elected
Sun, Sun, Sun
Sub Pop

The Elected have already gotten their fair share of mainstream press (Billboard, Pitchfork, et al), so I'll make this short.

"I'm not going home. Sometimes you just wouldn't dare. Sometimes you can't go home. Sometimes you're already there. When I look at you, I'm there."

That is so beautiful.

And there will doubtlessly be some people who will try to make something of the Rilo Kiley connection a member of this band has, but that would be completely stupid. Equally stupid would be trying to characterize this as some kind of Country Emo.

Check the video out here.

Sub Pop, thank you for a hopeful record.
